Hitori Tori - Kinematics [pan047]


Published July 7, 2010
Topics Electronic, IDM


This collection of songs evokes the disorienting feeling of daily commutes on high speed trains in the Kansai region of Japan. The view out of the cabin window was an endless blur of bobbing telephone wires and slanted trees.

Notes

In 1998 Julian La Brooy's four track recorder was tragically destroyed. A sound tracker completely changed everything and Hitori Tori was born. Agitated breaks became combined with tweaked arpeggiated synth lines, and a few lugubrious tones were thrown into the background for good measure.

Early releases included tracks as part of the electronic duo Finch on the Sugarmonk Omniscience Complilation in 1999, followed by several electroacoustic tracks out on Luumu recordings. Fasp, another musical incarnation, released an album on the Nishi net-label in 2002. In 2010, Hitori Tori continues with his meticulously detailed productions releasing series of 8 digital singles on Balanced Records.

Having played shows in Japan and Canada, Hitori Tori currently performs and resides in Vancouver.

Si hay un estilo que ya me ha empezado a gustar es el IDM y buscando en la web me encontré con esta hermosa referencia de Hitori Tori . Una reseña fiel al genero electrónico y nos deja bien en claro la producción y el manejo excelente con los sonidos digitales. Una referencia que no pude faltar para los amantes del IDM y me incluyo.

Hitori Tori ei ole keegi jaapani artist, vaid kanadalane Julian La Brooy, kes kuulus 90ndate lõpus duosse Finch ning edendas isiklikku projekti Fasp, reliisides samanimelise albumi legendaarse label`i Nishi all 2002. aastal. Praegu võib julgelt sama väita 11-loolise üllitise kohta, kuna La Brooy atmosfääriline IDM-muusika kõlab väga erksalt ka näituseks 21. septembril 2010.

Vancouver`i muusiku 4-looline ning 16-minutiline üllitis demonstreerib ühelt poolt masinlikke, täpselt välja mõõdetud rütmistruktuure, teisalt süstitakse sinna jultunult entroopilist efekti breakcore ja breakbeat-jurakate kaudu. Ning selle lõppefekt on sageli lõbusakoeline. Varasemale projektile omane atmosfäärilisus ei ole ka kuhugi kadunud, kuigi seda doseeritakse kindlasti väiksemates kogustes. Albumi üldmulje on voolav, mitmekesine, balanseeritud ning lõbus. Mõtlesin, et kas niimoodi võiks Autechre ja Felix Kubin omavahel kokku kõlada?
